Care Instructions for Silk Pillowcases and Silk Eye Masks
Congratulations on the purchase of your new Mulberry Silk Pillowcase and Eye Mask. If you follow these care instructions for your new silk pillowcase, your purchase will stay looking lovely for much longer.
Mulberry silk is delicate in nature, but if you can take a little extra care with your new pillowcase and mask you will get a longer life out of it – and the longer it will keep its silky texture and sheen.
Silk is always best to cold hand wash if possible. Second to hand washing is to use a delicates bag in your washing machine on a cold delicate cycle with similar colours. Always wash in lukewarm water under 30 degrees celsius. Make sure you choose a ph neutral, gentle wash detergent. One that states on the container that is is suitable for silk. Never use bleach or enzyme products or any products containing bleach, many detergents now contain these and they can strip the beautiful silk sheen quicker.
Never use a tumble dryer for your silk. Dry it flat in the shade, and if you need to iron make sure your iron is very carefully on the lowest setting. Always iron your silk pillowcase on the inside.
Care instructions for silk quilts
Care instructions will vary depending on which Lujo Home silk quilt you purchase. Our summer/mid quilts are able to be machine washed. Washing should be on the most gently setting. Using a silk approved detergent, in luke warm / cold water under 30 degrees celcius.
Our mid to winter quilts are recommended to be a dry clean only due to the extra silk filling.
